JASMINE KARA

Jasmine Kara is a Swedish and Iranian singer and songwriter. At an early age, she realised music was her big interest and she participated in numerous local talent shows. During her late teens she was in an abusive relationship and it was at that time that she used the music to feel better again. Jasmine Kara has released the biographic book Hälsa henne att hon ska dö (en: Tell her she will die), in which she talks about her abusive relationship and her childhood.

At the age of eighteen, Jasmine Kara moved to New York City, United States to fulfill her dream of signing a record deal. She succeeded in getting gigs in Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan. She sang in front of Beyoncé and Jay-Z when they visited a club where she was performing. In the end, a newly established record label, the Tri-Sound owned by Marshall Chess, signed Kara. Marshall Chess later became the executive producer for Kara's first music album Blues Ain't Nothing But A Good Woman Gone Bad, which was released on 28 July 2010 and was recorded at Cosmos Studios in Stockholm.
